It is little-known and even less climbed, perhaps not surprising when you consider its neighbours include Stac Polly, Suilven, Quinag, Cul Mor, Canisp, Ben More Assynt, a rollcall of A-listers in the pantheon. Ben Hee, by contrast, is a summer footnote, grassy stroll for a wet day, or a half day, a Corbett to bag. And to forget. But I would argue this relatively wee ben has a claim to be an almost perfect ski hill: four hugely contrasting aspects, or corries, and in a setting as stunning as anywhere in the Highlands. True, at only 873 metres it is rarely in full winter condition, particularly given that the most common approach is from Loch Merkland on its west side, and west sides in general don’t bode well for those on ski.
